"According to the report, mobile gaming will grow 21% YoY to almost $37 billion in 2016 from $30 billion in 2015. By 2019, that number will swell to $52.5 billion, or 45% of total worldwide gaming revenue.
China will account for about 25% of the market this year with $24 billion in gaming revenue. And gaming revenue from the Asia Pacific region as a whole will represent almost half (47%) of all revenue in 2016.
Console games, by contrast, will account for 26% of global gaming revenue in 2019, down from 30% in 2015. PCs will follow suit, with a drop from 28% in 2015 to 25% in 2019. But even with these declines, total revenue from these two segments will continue to rise."
PC gaming saw a huge surge to overtake consoles the last 3 years in revenue, but it looks like it's predicted to drop below consoles by 2019.
What we didn't see in the report... VR gaming.. which -- if it accounts for a piece of PC rather than mobile (it could possibly account for all 3 - PC, Console and Mobile) it doesn't appear that it's drastically increasing or changing the revenue streams by 2019 based on these reports.
What do you all think? Is Mobile the future?
